Teeth whitening is on my list of priorities - once I have got some money together, that is exactly what I am going to do professionally - until then, I am constantly on the lookout for at home teeth whitening products which actually work.
During my search, I discovered White Glo which has a product kit containing teeth whitening gel, teeth whitening toothpaste and a mouth tray thing that holds the gel in place. The Diamond Series gel lifts and removes stains and yellowing on tooth enamel without abrasion - meaning your teeth won't be damaged in the process.
The kit works like this: you use the gel once a day for 7 days to achieve a whiter smiles, and use the whitening toothpaste along side it. I prefer to use the gel in the morning, because you have to leave it in for about 15 minutes and that's exactly how long it usually takes me to do my daily makeup so I brush my teeth and use the mouth piece to secure a layer of gel on my top and bottom teeth. Then wait... After 15 minutes, rinse out the gel and carry on with your day.
I thought this would be the perfect product to review before the holidays as everyone is getting glammed up and looking their best for the multitude of parties going on over the next couple of weeks. I wanted a whiter smile for the get togethers, parties and balls on my lost of events so I used White Glo Diamond Series kit before Liams annual Christmas ball.
As per the directions, I used the kit for 7 days and carried on with the whitening toothpaste along side the gel to ensure my teeth were getting the most out of the kit. After first use, my teeth felt really clean and smooth - I loved the effect. It's pretty fun to use too - I love how convenient and comfortable the mouth tray thing felt!
However, I have to say I haven't noticed much of a change in the shade of my teeth. Which is why I'm not going to publish a before and after picture of my trial as I'm still not confident about the shade of my teeth - they appear shinier, definitely, but whiter? I'm not convinced. You are advised to wait a little while before attempting to whiten your teeth further, which is exactly what I'm going to reattempt to see if that makes a difference - there are an average of 35 uses in each tub so there is enough for several go's! Keep an eye out for an update on this review - if I see a change, I will make a note and tell you. But as far as my super white smile for the holidays goes - it's a longer process than a 7 day whitening kit treatment.
Saying that - White Glo are that confident that if you don't notice a difference, the operate a money back guarantee! So you can purchase the product and if you're really not happy with the results, you can apply for a refund.
